Good morning fellow scrappers! Kay
here with my interpretation of the February 'mixed media' challenge hosted by fellow DT member Mandy. When I see the term 'mixed media' I always think of 'messy fun'. Needless to say I ended up going into the office for two days straight with blue fingers because of this page. I ended up getting the dark blue mist onto my fingers & it decided to stay there for a few!
Here I am with my cousin who visited me from my homeland of Chile just this past Spring. We're standing on top of the Empire State Building taking 'selfies'. The title of the page 'Adventure' is really meant for my cousin since visiting the USA was a first for her & a very memorable adventure.
Here's a recap of the challenge...
, in visual art
, refers to an artwork
in the making of which more than one medium
has been employed. For this challenge, create a "mixed media" page, canvas, card, etc. using more than one medium. Example:
paints, mists, textured paste, gesso, chalks, inks, rubs, embossing powder, and more!
Let's see, I ended up using a couple of techniques & mediums on this page. I used mists, inks, modeling paste, embossing & a touch of gesso.
I also did some stamping which in my little world, I consider to be a form of mixed media as well. It's amazing the different effects you can get from stamping.
I tucked a kraft bag behind my trio of photos & created a tag to store in it which holds my journaling. The blue flower shown here was actually all white. I spritzed it with dark blue mists & spread a bit of gesso on it.
I'm a big fan of layers & tend to add them in abundance to my pages when possible--here you can see how the layers 'pop' off the page I bit. I use foam dots to give my layers a bit of dimension.
A combo of modeling paste, stamping, misting & inking.
For the Molossi 'Bird Branch' chipboard--I didn't do much to it--I kept it in the raw since the natural color of the chipboard went with my page. I just added some highlights to the leaves with a white gel pen & heat embossed the whole chipboard with Star Dust Translucent Embossing Powder by Stampendous. This gave the chippie a shimmery effect that 'pops' off the page.
Now onto the prizes...
